don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. fibromyalgia may have changed things. but with less pain, i'm still a doer.

8:16 am
hone, i think i should learn how to cook, don't i? >> yeah. >> and -- >> yeah. i just humor it but she has no business in the kitchen. >> their domestic life aside, turns out the way this celebrity couple celebrated their nuptials was by going back to work together on the screen for the first time in ten years, a film produced by our sister company, universal pictures "by the sea." >> what's cooking, good looking. >> reporter: in which angelina not only stars, she's the writer, director and producer. this is a much different film mrs. smith." >> the a little bit. >> we were joking at one point, this is like the beginning and this is like ten years later. this is what ten years of marriage will do to you. >> the do it. >> stop! stop! >> reporter: i don't want to give away too much about the film "by the sea" by i think a lot of fans and other movie-goers will be a little
8:17 am
surprised by some things. here you have one of the most secure marriages in hollywood and this is about the two of you in a deeply troubled marriage. was this a big risk on your part? >> well, i think, one, i'm counting on the audience to know that if it was close to us at all we could never make this film. it's because we're actually very, very stable and these aren't our issues. >> blowing you a kiss. >> i'm blowing you one back. >> reporter: "by the sea" which seems more like a european art film than a traditional hollywood blockbuster is a deeply personal project. it was inspired by her own bereavement and grief after dealing with her mother's eight-year battle with cancer. >> i can't say what the whole familiar is about, but a lot of the film is when i went to visit my mom in the hospital when she found out she had -- she had cancer the first time. had to have her ovaries removed and very upset and feeling like this was taking out her parts that were female and there was a
8:18 am
wailing, and i later found out it was a young woman who had not had children yet and that put everything into perspective. >> reporter: angelina's mother, the actress, was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1989 at 49 and died in 2007, this following the deaths of angelina's grandmother and maternal aunt also because of cancer. a few years ago a blood test revealed that angelina carried a mutation of the brca-1 gene giving her an 87% risk of breast cancer, a 50% risk of ovarian cancer, so in 2013 she had both breasts removed and underwent reconstructive surgery emerging as a beacon of hope for women when she told the world. >> well, i feel wonderful, and i'm very, very grateful for all the support. meant a lot to me. >> reporter: have you been stunned by the reaction to this,
8:19 am
and are there parts of it that are worrisome to you? >> you never know what a reaction is. you have to just make the choices you make in life had. i made the choices i made because i believe they were right for me. >> reporter: then in march of this year while she was editing "by the sea" her doctor called with news that another blood test showed she could have signs of early ovarian cancer. she called brad right away. >> i was out in france and angie called me, and i got straight on a plane to return. seeing my wife have to be her strongest and knowing that it's the scarest estiest of news is terribly moving and not being there is a horrible feeling. >> reporter: together they faced the crisis and though tended up she did not have a full-blown tumor, she had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed. throughout the ordeal, her mother was never far from her thoughts. >> we had some of the same nurses, some of the same doctors
8:20 am
so the doctor that did my ovary surgery was my mother's doctor. my mother had said to her promise me you will take angie's ovaries out and so we kind of got together -- both had a big cry and she said i promised your mother and i've got to do this. >> reporter: less than two weeks after her procedure she wrote an op-ed piece for the "new york times" to make other women aware of what they might expect if they face the same issues. in and leona's case, despite hormonal replacement therapy, her ovarian surgery brought on an early onset of menopause. >> every woman is different when they go through menopause and every woman -- i didn't know how emotionally it would be, i knew the breasts would be physically changing and the ovaries is more your emotions change and your hormones changing but it's different. you feel different. >> reporter: for brad angelina's surgeries and medical challenges these past few years have been
8:21 am
inspirational. but she had to make big decisions did double mastectomy and then about having her ovaries removed. how did you see your role in all of that? >> support, whatever's got to be done to keep the family together and keep the family together as long as possible is going to be done. no question it's a scary decision and there's many things that can go wrong and many different directions, but it was really led by her dedication this is what i've got to the do and this is what i'm going to do. >> reporter: did you have an appreciation of the emotional part of it? >> i just remember there was no vanity to my wife's approach. it was mature. it was an excitement to where this is our life and we're going to make about it. there was a strength in, that just another one of those things in life that makes you tighter. she was doing it for her kids and doing it for her family so she had -- so we could be together which was -- which trumped everything. trumped everything and anything. >> i think for as much as he
8:22 am
speaks about my strength, i knew that he made it very, very clear to me that what he loved and what was a woman to him was somebody who was smart and capable and cared about her family, that it wasn't about -- not about your physical body so i knew through the surgeries that he was on my side and that this wasn't something where i was going to feel less of a woman because my husband wasn't going to let that happen. >> reporter: and in the long run angelina now thinks that her experiences might help others. >> many of us will have cancer. people all die and so to -- to face these issues together and speak about them and talk about what it is to be human i think can be a beautiful thing. >> as you know, hollywood is not my natural arena, but the fact is i'm very taken with these two because of their honesty. they didn't try to in some way to engage me in a way that would improve on their careers. i think her message is very important to women all over the world quite honestly, and they
8:23 am
were going from here, by the way, pack to his hometown of springfield, missouri where he has a compound on a lake, spend the week with his aunts and uncles and other people and retreat to their very private lives except when they have something important to say, so hats off to the two of them. >> hollywood might not be your thing but people your strong suit and it was a great interview. >> i do admire their honesty, and what she does is going to be critically important downstream to young women coming of age and not being afraid to make the decisions that are very hard. >> and showing how to make them with such grace as well. tom, thank you very much. we should mention, by the way, their move "by the sea" from our sister company universal will be in theaters on november 13th. coming up we'll change gears and get ready for the upcoming holiday season. curtis stone will help us talk turkey. his recipe for the ultimate bird. dylan. and antonio -- can you say your name. >> so much better when you say it.

and a wife, and you have a wife and a baby on the way. >> antonio banderas, good >> good morning. >> what a story. on the one hand we all followed this and we know how it ends, but the movie really delves into what is happening and the human story there. did it feel like that to you? >> absolutely. we have movies where we know about the outcome and the story really tells the nuances, the subtleness of the relationships of what happened there. it's very important, and the story is just giving us simple but essential stories of our life itself. >> you play a character named mario who became known as super mario because he seemed to be such a leader of the miners and i know you got to the spend some time with that. >> how was that?
8:34 am
>> it was great. gave me a lot of data about the situation and the event itself, you know, and they found basically a survivor, a man that seems at the very early stages in his life, to struggle really, really hard to survive and life gave him after all an opportunity to use all of that people. >> i should mention this wasn't exactly filmed on some air conditioned soundstage somewhere >> no. >> these were pretty grueling conditions of the tell me about >> yeah. miserable. we were shooting in mines, in places. and it was, you know -- it was very good for the movie and very bad for us actually. weight. i mean you guys -- >> we had to do that. >> we spent 14 hours in darkness, it was very cold in the mine and we had to fake actually it was very hard in
8:35 am
reality what it was and at the same time we were breathing all the time this methane gas. it was, you know, tough conditions, but it adds realism to the story, that's what we were looking for and at the same time made us understand the conditions in which not these particular miners and this particular event but miners in general and workers in general, sometimes they are obliged to work. >> yeah. and it's a testament to the human spirit for sure. >> definitely. >> antonio banderas, congratulations on the movie. thank you.

8:39 am
third of a cup and we dump that into some hot water, into our hot water goes the spice, some sugar, a little salt -- well, not a little salt, a lot of salt. >> this is thanksgiving, go wild. >> this is just to season the bird and like beer like every good australian does so thanksgiving, if you get the right spices, the other thing i love about this cajun mix, you bring that up to a boil. the -- the beautiful thing about this particular spice mix it gives you a golden brown finish and i feel like we see that so often. once this is dissolved, you know, you want to achieve it yourself. >> we've got our tasters downstairs ready to dig in on this. >> we echo your sentiments, the best turkey ever. >> this is unbelievable. >> i want to east this. >> best, best, best. >> getting a lot of yes votes. >> as soon as your sugar and salts dissolve, i'll going to cheat. pick it up and add it to cold water. you put a little ice in that water and you end up with a beautiful cold brine.
8:40 am
you don't want at hot brine so excuse me, go on, matt. wasn't going to make you do that. good work. >> this way or this way. >> doesn't matter. >> you'll see once that cavity fills up, basically singh that from the inside out. >> get in there. >> and then it's time to stuff it. so that stays in the brine for about 12 hours. stick the whole thing in your refrigerator and 12 hours late they are happens and then you get yourself some onions and bell persons and celery, you know, basically whatever veggies you've got laying around get stuffed right into the cavity of the turk to, a little bit of thyme and we'll go ahead and tie that up just like this, and the reason you are tying it because you want it to cook evenly and keep the legs together so it means that the breast and the leg are going to kick >> you put it in the oven, had you often do you baste this thing? >> that goes in there. >> got your baste over here which is the rest of your spice mix and have a look at this gorgeous golden color and then
8:41 am
you need to cook it until an internal thermometer reads 165, 170 degrees. >> mm-hmm. >> okay, and then of course to carve you get this beautiful succulent turkey. >> curtis, i'm telling you, not kidding, best turkey i've ever had. happy thanksgiving. >> you are not kidding. >> could you put the bread stuffing in the cavity. >> stuff it with whatever you like, little bit of vegetables, bread delicious in there. >> scale of 1 to 10. >> 12. >> and the gravy is really good, do you use the drippings to make the grave? >> i do, and if you stick around i'll make that in the next hour. >> we've been drinking the gravy. >> never seen matt pig out this much on any cooking seg sglnt best turkey. today.com/food. >> coming up next, a special performance in studio 1a from

8:44 am
suppose, most of them. >> 50-plus years in the business. if you look at business of being a recording artist what's the biggest change today versus when you started? >> well, i would like to become into the music business now, so discouraging, but the biggest change it's not the same business as it was a month ago and two years it's changed so much. >> technology. >> technology and records don't sell like they used to. i recorded all the album at home and it was a wonderful experience. instead of going into a studio, you know, spending thousands and thousands of dollars to get a bass drum sound, it's really a time-waster so that's a big difference for me. >> we've been doing these interviews and every time i see you i want that outfite and i can't pull that off. you always look great. you like clothes, don't you. >> always have. >> what are you going to sing for us this morning? >> a song called "love is." as if i know. >> you've tried. >> i've tried.
